    The domain I have in the virtual database is the same as what I'm using in my destinations and is also my real domain. I have tried removing it form my destinations however the result was the same. And it gave me errors on bootup of the system. What I think Im really after is to use a real domain with virtual users.

    What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf?

    I was unable to duplicate the error. But it was kicking out of the GUI boot up screen during AMAVIS start up and said something about changing owner. The physical server is named eoins01.eoinscaislean.com. I was using the same name for myhost name in postfix/main.cf I have changed that to mail.eoinscaislean.com and changed the mx record to reflect. In order to try and give you more information I'm going to post everything I normally see you ask for.

    In the mail database

    Domains

    contains one entry eoinscaislean.com

    Users

    now contains 3 users none of them are now real users on the machine.

    Transport

    is empty

    Forwarding


    contains 1 entry forwarding mail between two of the virtual users for testing.


    At one point I added eoinscaislean.com to the end of the MY Destinations in the main.cf file and it did deliver mail to a real system users (put it in /var/mail) but claimed that the virtual users were unknown. If i try to check mail with evolution It gives me pop up to accept certificate I ok give password and it seems to check mail. SquirrelMail also looks like it is checking for mail in the logs. And I can send mail from any virtual user to gmail account or to my account at work. Be it with SquirrelMail or using evolution.


    Thanks for your help.

    Ok, this is getting too confusing for me. Can you please each open a new thread?
